March 5th: Herb Ogden et al.,“Martyrs Old & New” First, five people present The Trial of Francis David, a playlet about David's 1579 trial on account of his refusal to stop religious innovation in Transylvania. It led to his death, but the Unitarian Church that he founded still exists in Romania and has spread to present day Hungary. Next, we present a possible modern day equivalent. @bPLUS: EXPLORING BUDDHISM- Kids 4-12]are invited to join us downstairs at 10:30am for activities about Buddhism, part of our series on the Religions of the World.

March 12th: Rev. Barbara Threet "Listening Loudly” We humans - perhaps, especially, we UU humans - pay a great deal of attention to how we express ourselves, and to making ourselves heard. We often want to speak loudly, not necessarily in volume but in impact and articulation and persuasiveness. Speaking is an essential part of how we connect, and connection is very important to us. This Sunday, we’ll explore how we might learn to listen just as loudly, with more care, curiosity, compassion, and connection.

March 19th: Kathy Harm:“Comfort the Afflicted, Afflict the Comfortable” The speaker will look at whether,in specifically welcoming particular groups of individuals to our church, we are in danger of creating a “silent majority” who feel neglected or undervalued or neglected.

March 26th: Nancy Weis: "We Just Never Learn”: No matter how hard we try to share your hard-earned wisdom with a kid, they are going to make the same stupid mistakes we did. No matter what devastating lessons history teaches humanity, we seem doomed to repeat the errors of the past. So, how does civilization ever survive, and how can we help?

April 2nd: Ray Merrihew": “Shamanism”: One man’s journey to an unexpected spiritual awakening. Provided with loving parents, but also provided with feelings of being defective and second rate, from a minor, today, birth defect, this boy had no idea who he would be expected to become, and expected to do, some 60 years later. God gave him lots of support: The disease of addiction that forced and enabled his nascent spirituality to develop, and 35 years later, an Imperative urge, in June 2009, to seek spiritual work beyond AA. An Advance weekend Workshop on Shamanism was the first opportunity that arose.
